St. Louis Rams Reach Out to Brett Favre to Help with Quarterback Dilemma

The Seattle Seahawks’ next opponent lost starting QB Sam Bradford last weekend to knee injury, and reportedly asked if the 44-year-old grandfather would consider coming out of retirement.

ESPN’s Adam Scheffter reports that the Rams are so in need of a quarterback that they reached out to Favre, who last played in 2010.

The three time MVP said that he was flattered but it wasn’t going to happen.

“I had a great career. I think if anything, the last year that I played was an obvious writing-on-the-wall vision for you, if you will,” he said. “It was time.”

Favre also said that he was nowhere close to being in playing shape.

“I’m like a yardstick, I’m so stiff,” he said. “So I’m just trying to … not stay in shape to play, but stay in shape to do everyday things, not only with my daughter and my wife and my grandson, but really just for me.”

The Rams signed former Seahawks quarterback Brady Quinn, who had been on the New York Jets’ roster to back up Kellen Clemens. Clemens had been Bradford’s  back up this season.

The Rams will host the Seahawks on Monday, with the broadcast starting at 3:30 p.m. on Newstalk KIT.
